I have been asking him to gradually quit smoking since last year for our daughter's sake. I think he went as far as reducing it to three sticks a day. He also tells me that he never finishes a stick.
I was on the phone talking to him awhile ago. I heard him buying cigarettes. And then I told him calmly that someone is asking me at work to hang out and smoke during our breaks. I told him that I would take the invite and start smoking too. Since he can't stop, maybe I should start.
He then gave me a violent reaction that it's not good for me because I'm a woman and it doesn't look good when women do that. And then I told him that our lungs are one and the same anatomically and functionally and our gender has nothing to do with it.
And so, I heard him tell the lady in the sari-sari that he changed his mind about the cigarette.
If he happens to tell me again that he smoked a couple, I would tell him that I would do the same thing the next day. And then I'll make a report that I did smoke (even if I didn't).
Hope this works! Crossing my fingers!
